The Congregation for Humanistic Judaism will present a program about Sherwin Wine, the founder of Humantistic Judaism, on Sunday morning, Dec. 15 at the Bedford Middle School.

The free program is open to the public at the 88 North Ave. school.

The congregation said the program would include discussion of Wine -- a Reform rabbi who left that denomination to lead the non-theistic, human-centered movement -- and the congregational model for modern, secular Jews.

"What You Didn't Know about Sherwin Wine" will explore Wine's message, influences and creations, congregation officials said. Also to be discussed are his vision for Humanistic Judaism, the value of Jewish identity and people who are the new voices of Humanistic Judaism.

Before the program, coffee and bagels will be served at 9:30 a.m.
